Decisions of a Cub Fan, who do I cheer for?

Yes, I'm a Cub Fan. Been a Cub fan since I was a small boy. Every year I have chosen the National League Team in the same Division as the Cubs to win the National League Title.

This year who do I cheer for? Houston and St. Louis are both in the Central Division with the Cubs. My dad liked the Cardinals when he was growing up, so maybe them. I liked McGwire, Rolen, and I like Pujols. But the Cardinals are the Cubs "Arch Enemy."

I have liked Bagwell for years and have wished (Maybe Fantasized) he was a Cub. I really enjoy watching Lance Berkman and Roger Clemens is a HOFer, but I don't particularly like him for some reason and I can't figure out why. (I think it has something to do with Piazza) Then again, I have dreamed of having him on the Cubs. Clemens, Woods, Prior, Zambrano, Randy Johnson, and the Professor Maddux. Okay, that is too many starting pitchers for one team. I can dream, can't I?

So who do I cheer for? The Stros or the Cards?

Wait! Lets take a look at who has the most ex-Cubs.

Wait, that won't work! The Astros have Jose Vizcaino who just couldn't hit as a Cub, but for some reason the Cubs kept around for so long. The Cardinals have Julian Tavarez who I didn't appreciate as a Cub either.

Oh yea! The Boston Red Sox are so much like the Cubs (in there history) that it would almost be like cheering for the Cubs and I can't stand the Yankees either.

That settles it then. Go Redsox!
